Did not quite live up to my expectations. The book is divided about equally between two characters' stories, which, of course, are connected in the end. The plot was not particularly intricate or surprising, but perhaps the main reason I feel apathetic toward the book is that I did not fully engage with the characters, especially Lauren, who is somewhat helpless (shutting out her memories of the past - one memory in particular - she is unable to move into the future). At least Sylvia is taking action to get out of the rut she has been in. I would not warn anyone away from this book, but I would probably recommend something else instead.

"My emotions hadn't caught up with the circumstances." (247)
